Good morning, my fellow golf fitness aficionado.
On this beautiful Thursday morning, I’ve got a little trickery for you.
I want to share something really important that just might change how you look at your fitness.
It’s a mindset trick that will make it EASIER for you to:
- Stick with the basics
- Avoid feeling overwhelmed
- Take off some of the pressure you might feel about all things you think you “should” be doing
Think back to the last time you had to teach someone something.
Maybe it was a new person at work…maybe it was teaching a kid to tie (or Velcro) their shoes…or maybe it was in an actual classroom.
How did you do it?
I’m guessing you didn’t overwhelm your student with EVERYTHING at once – or expect them to do it exactly right on their first (or second or third) try.
You probably started with the basics…at the very beginning…and then when they understood them, you added more info or actions.
Your healthy lifestyle habits are no different.
EXCEPT that we expect ourselves to be able to jump right into the deep end and do ALL the things from Day One.
(And do them perfectly.)
Not exactly a recipe for success – more like a plan for burnout and frustration.
A better approach:
Let yourself be like your student. And focus on 1-2 new habits and skills – actions that actually help you feel SUCCESSFUL.
For example: In the 18STRONG App, the Daily Motion EFD is already on your work out calendar. It’s a 5-7 minute mobility routine designed to “grease” your joints. And get you moving loose and free.
Everyone has 7 minutes. So, start there.
And then add more when it’s time.
Sounds pretty doable, right?
If you’re still reading right now, it’s for a reason. You’re probably ready to make some kind of a change in your life…and that’s AMAZING.
If this is you, then I would start with the 18STRONG App.
You’ve got this,
PS – One aspect of the 18STRONG App we do a bad job of telling people about is the built-in messaging system.
Right in the app, you can message our team directly. So, you can be in the middle of your training. Have a question. And fire it off to us on the spot.
We’ll help you smash through the obstacles that will definitely pop up.
